Again just like what alternapop said. Loved to see this reissued. Lost souls is one of my favourite albums ever. Just like Kate Bushes Ariel, I will have to except the fact that I will never own this.

I've seen Doves 4 times, the first time was in 2002 at a small venue that holds about 500 people and the opener was My Morning Jacket. I'd love to have this on vinyl. Maybe it'll be reissued one day.

On this first lush and dreamy offering by Doves, one slowly comes to terms with the music, as if the sounds are waves washing over you, bathing you in shimmering sounds and floating you away ... but not to an island of lost souls, more to a place of where there is a meeting of the minds.

This is no easy journey though, there is so much music here, and in a variety of styles, that it will take some time to get through all of it, place it in a contextually, and sort it out in your head ... but that’s half the fun for me. Doves have created a sound here that is almost impossible to define and pin down, it is ethereal, atmospheric, textured, floats like clouds and comes back to haunt you when you least expect it to.

This record is not as pretentious as I am making it to seem, the music is totally unexpected and as I said undefinable ... this all goes to create something so wonderful that it can not be described, only appreciated and enjoyed through listening.

Every Doves record deserves to have a Remaster/Reissue. Specially this one.

Prices for this album makes me cry.

It's been 15 years since this was released, so it's about time this had a proper vinyl repress! Do you hear that Heavenly?!?! The wait is killing me! Maybe that somehow has a one hour version of "The Cedar Room"! The album is so amazing, but too hard to get on vinyl, without giving up a limb!

one of the best albums ever made in my opinion. Wonderful sonic scapes and complex layered instruments. Doves are the most under rated bands to emerge from the UK in the past 25 years. Firesuite is a brilliant way to open an album, melancholic and beautifully paced. Best listened to on headphones, while travelling, you hear different parts to it with every fresh listen. I've just bought it (at great expense due to the rarity) on vinyl and I swear I am hearing new elements of the album all over again.

To see these guys live is an absolute privilege. They switch instruments for some songs, and just jam through some of the songs - musically they are extremely talented. And of course, they usually finish with the rave classic Spaceface from their SubSub days which is just epic. The tragedy is there limited output - 4 albums in 12 years is hardly prolific and it would appear the last album may be their last. Apparently they sweat blood over every song on every album and therefore the creative process is a struggle for them. The struggle is worth it for me at least.

10/10

I have a UK Promo release for 'Lost Souls' that is not listed here. It is in a cardboard sleeve that is the same as the one pictured for their the UK Promo 2 track single for 'The Man Who Told Everything' on Heavenly Records with catalog number HVN98CDRP. On the top section 'doves lost souls' is printed and on the section below there are 12 tracks listed, everything is printed in lower case. On the back there is some printing such as 'for promotional use only' it lists that it is made by EMI-Chrysalis with the catalog number HVNLP26CDP and that it is a Heavenly recording and credit info for the release. My scanner is not working at the moment otherwise I would add pics of it with the other promo release.
Cheers

The most interesting thing I find about Doves is that they used to be an electronic group by the name of Sub Sub until a studio fire destroyed a good amount of their equipment. While they had good productions as Sub Sub like "Space Face" and "Past", they decided to start anew and make completely different kind of music. "Lost Souls", Doves' debut album, would foreshadow their prominence in the rock/alternative/pop genres. The first track, "Firesuite", is a predominantly instrumental track that starts the cd off with a slow, relaxed mood. Track 3, "Break Me Gently", was the song that got me into Doves when I heard the Hybrid version in one of their mixes. I prefer the first half of the cd due to the melancholy, slow paced songs like "Firesuite", "Break Me Gently", "Sea Song" and "Rise". The second half of the CD includes the notable track "Catch the Sun", which just might be the most popular track from this cd. "Lost Souls" is a very quality cd and has little to no filler tracks; almost every song is enjoyable to listen to.
